This series in English translates to River of Fables, is an anthology based on four Assamese folktales from the popular collection of stories called Burhi Aair Sadhu by Lakshminath Bezbaroa. The four fables are Tejimola, Champawati, Ou Kuwori (The Outenga Maiden) and Tawoir Xadhu (The Story of Tawoi). The vows to unearth the secret but finds a shocking truth instead.

‘No One Will Save You’ (Disney+ Hotstar)

Perhaps, the most original script on the list, one that has only five words of dialogue through its 90-minute runtime. Traumatised, perennially anxious seamstress Brynn is stuck at home because she feels too afraid to go out on most days. One night, she realizes that aliens have taken over her small town — and moreover, that one of these aliens has invaded her own home. Think Predator crossed with Home Alone and you have a decent picture of the madcap frenzy unleashed by No One Will Save You.
